Like most Eagle fans I am fed up with Coach Reid. His coaching deficiencies, his smugness, his cockiness, his pointless press conferences, and his poor player personal decisions (and on, and on). It all comes back to the big guy.
In my opinion it is time for Reid to go. He had a great run, we appreciate everything he has done for the city and done for the franchise.
Such thinking brings back the Tampa Bay situation of a few years back. A USA Today article
summed up the Tampa Bay and Dungy situation perfectly:
Gruden had a tough act to follow. He replaced Tony Dungy, who was the most successful coach in franchise history. He turned the franchise around from bumblers to solid playoff contenders. The players liked and respected Dungy, who was fired last year after yet another first-round playoff loss in Philadelphia.
"Tony Dungy did a great job," Gruden said Sunday, repeating a theme he's maintained all season.
Gruden's mission was simple but challenging. Take the Bucs beyond the first round, beyond where Dungy took them. Turn them from a team with a very good defense and inept offense into something special. Mission accomplished.
Kinda reminds me of the Philly situation. The Eagles have gone as far as Reid can take them. The talent seems to be here to make a run, unfortunately Reid is longer the coach who can guide them to success. Bill Cowher anyone?
